(b) 28 days have passed since the payee declaration was made without the payee having informed the eligible paying authority of his or her tax file number. 221YHB(7) Section 202BD notice in force.
If, within the 28 days, a notice in relation to the payee given to the eligible paying authority under section 202BD comes into force, the payee declaration does not cease to be in force until no notice in relation to the payee given to the eligible paying authority under section 202BD is in force.221YHB(8) Payee has no tax file number.

(c) the Commissioner, by written notice given to the eligible paying authority and the payee, informs them accordingly and states that the declaration ceases to be in force on a specified day (which must not be earlier than the day on which the notice is given to the payee).
In such a case, the payee declaration ceases to be in force on the day specified in the notices.221YHB(9) Statement of reasons to payee.
